What do you think when you hear the word "Butternut Squash" in October? Maybe you think of little tan or brown veggies that are just as cute as can be? That's what we though about this sweet girl when she arrived in our care on October 9th, what a cutie! Unfortunately Butternut was in rough shape and in need of immediate medical attention. Read below to learn how we helped Butternut and how your donation has a positive impact on the pets that depend on us.
Butternut came to us as after a concerned resident reported he had found an injured dog his yard. Upon Butternut's arrival at the Humane Society of Mid Michigan, it was clear she was in dire need of help. No one knows her story, her name, her history or if there is even a family out looking for her.. but at the time she entered our doors none of that mattered. What mattered is that she was in our care and it became our responsibility that she received the proper treatment for her injuries.
Our rescue drivers immediately rushed her to Sterner Veterinary Clinic to have her examined. It was determined that she would need surgery for her injuries. Sterner cleaned her wound, inserted a drainage tube and placed her on medication to battle the bad infection she had.
Lucky for Butternut she landed in good hands at the Humane Society of Mid Michigan and is on her way to being a happy and healthy dog. Thank you all for your support, Butternut is especially thankful!
